Last summer, I checked into the Pullman St Pancras Hotel on a particularly scorching London summer’s day after a long day of rushing around working in London. As soon as I entered the hotel I was hit by the refreshing air conditioning, cool feature lamps and spacious reception and couldn’t wait to check-in to my room and collapse on the bed.
My room didn’t disappoint and it was a good size with a big king-sized bed in the middle, modern furnishings, bright splashes of yellow and fantastic view across London. The bathroom was tastefully decorated with a big walk-in shower and I was impressed with the boutique toiletry offering.
The bed was lovely and comfortable and I lay and watched TV for an hour whilst I caught up on some emails and got stuck into the macarons and fruit that had kindly been left waiting for me in my room.
My friend was staying with me that evening and she arrived and dropped her bags off before we headed out for dinner at Caravan in nearby Granary Square. King’s Cross really is a London destination in its own right now with all the new restaurants, cafes and bars and it’s no longer just an area to hop on or off a train at the two busy stations.
After a good night’s sleep, we woke the next morning and headed down to the open-plan restaurant at the back of reception for breakfast. There was lots on offer for breakfast and we enjoyed some granola and yoghurt from the cereal bar before tucking into a cooked breakfast and toast. The only slightly annoying thing was that you had to select your bread and hand it to the chef behind the cooked breakfast counter to toast it rather than pop it in a toaster yourself. This resulted in a bit of a queue to get some toast, which wasn’t ideal first thing in the morning. Tea and coffee was made to order and brought swiftly to the table and other than the wait for toast, we enjoyed a great breakfast.
Pullman St Pancras is situated in a perfect location for both visitors catching early trains out of Euston or St Pancras and also for exploring the capital, as King’s Cross is on a wealth of tube lines and bus routes. The hotel has it’s own restaurant and bar but there are also some great food and drink places to explore nearby giving guests the choice of both.
